Subject: My Delorean Buying Haulted by Fire

Well, for those of you who are living in a box, the Cerro Grande Fire of new
mexico has claimed most of Los Alamos.  Unfortunately, because of that, it
has claimed the houses of both my Aunt and my Grandmother. (and possibly
soon that of my other grandparents, and my great aunt and uncle)  Due to
this, i will be putting MY money towards efforts to help my family, so all
Delorean hunting for me has HAULTED.  This isn't so much a complaint on my
part so much as it is just venting the frustration and sense of helplessness
i have because of this whole ordeal.. it is like a nightmare that you just
can't wake up from... and soon, my town will be evacuated also *sigh*

Maybe some good will come of this, but in the meantime, it's HELL here.

-Michael

Hi Bob,  Just wanted to comment on the A/C.  DMC Joe says his A/C will cool
down to 35 degrees or so and he lives in Georgia.  I live in the Phoenix
area and turn the A/C down.  To be fair, I replaced the compressor and
accumulator along with a couple of other parts last year but it was well
worth it.  Maybe just another one of those needs attentions things.

Well, I just sold my Delorean for a chunk of cash and a Porsche 944. Of 
course no price is good enough for a Delorean so I kept my accessories which 
I will be selling privately. I'll use ebay, but I figured I'd offer these 
items to the DMCnewsgroup first. The items are:

CUSTOM WHEELS: with upgraded sizes 15" front and 16" rear with fairly new 
Toyo Proxes 50 serire low profile tires. These replace the originals 
perfectly with no rubbing, even at high speeds, bumps or lock to lock 
turning of the steering wheel. Offer these for $1500.00 -4 rims with tires 
mounted and balanced with new locking lug set and lug tool. For the DMCnews 
list subscribers I will let them go for $1200.00.
To see these wheels on the car go to www.geocities.com/deloreancars.

SUBWOOFER CONVERSION KIT: replaces the cover of the locking luggage 
compartment. Kit includes speaker mounting plate, 8" Infinity subwoofer, 200 
watt mosfet amplifier (fits in locking compartment) and heavy duty speaker 
wire between the two. The color of the kit is grey. This is not for use with 
the stock stereo. You have to run RCA, remote, power and ground cables from 
the stereo to the compartment. The price for the whole kit is $400.00, but 
again for the list I'll do $250.00. This can also be viewed at 
www.geocities.com/deloreancars.

Well, my "D" had sit without even being started for 15 years and all I did was pull a vacumn and re-charge the system. To be honest, I was really surprised when it came up and started cooling after sitting that long. Maybe somewhere down the line I too should think about replacing some of the system.

Subject: door trim


  Sorry to clutter the list but would someone please email me the method of 
removing the large door trim to gain access to the window motor assembly.  I 
followed the service manual instructions, snapped a fir tree and quit.  If 
there is a more comprehensive or better method please let me know.  THanks!.

Gus,

Their is another solution to your GPS question.
You can go with an Eclipse Commander & CD tuner or receiver.
I had this unit installed in my Delorean with a small amount of
modification.
As usual the receiver indash, also a GPS antenna(gray 3"x3") on the dash
by the passengers side A post and a small microphone(black 1"x3/4")
mounted by the hazard button. 
The computer module fits behind the center council and a 400W Fosgate
amp. is mounted in the compartment behind driver and all speakers were
upgraded for better sound.
Also an 8 disk CD changer is mounted sideways in the glove compartment
by cutting out the bottom, but can't be seen behind the kneepad.
All this was done to preserve the stock look of the car, with no holes
drilled in the trunk, although a subwoofer tube(2-8") was added to the
parcel shelf later.
This unit is unique in that all directions & street names are shown on
the head units  VF display, and not on a separate screen display and all
direction are spoken to you through your existing stereo speakers by a a
voice that doesn't sound like a computer.

In addition the unit is voice command so all of your destinations are
spelled into the Commanders small microphone instead of manual
input(good voice recognition software is used to accomplish this).
Also the Commander controls the stereo functions to change to AM/FM or
preset station, changes CD's and cd tracks and can optionally be used to
rollup and down your windows and lock the doors or just tell you where
you are, all by spoken commands!
Although I opted not to hookup the windows & locks(to quirky) so I can't
comment on how this works on my car.
I will be adding it's hands free cellphone interface soon and will be
able to place calls by voice command and listen through my existing
speakers, not some tiny add ons.
Of course all this technology comes at a price.
But when I bought my car it was to drive and have FUN so lets go for it!

I am not affiliated with Fujitsu Ten the manufacturer, and was actually
recommended to the installation shop that suggested this system by One
of the Delorean repair shops that I have used to restore my car. I
thought that this technology fit in with the spirit of the car in which
we drive, without changing the stock look to much. Translation: it's
COOL, although my wife tells me that I do look strange driving while
talking to my car ;)
Unfortunately I can't make it to Cleveland, it conflicts with my work
schedule, but
info on the Eclipse Commander can be found at http://www.eclipse-web.com

Subject: Repairable FASCIA for SALE

Hello List,
    I have been working a ton of hours so I can get my DeLorean finished by 
the end of the summer.  I recently bought a faded fascia for it since I am 
repainting the whole car Black.  
    The fascia that was removed from my car has two 4-5 inch cuts.  My car 
had the passenger side rear 1/4 panel backed into many years ago and it has 
sat ever since.  The corner of the fascia was caught and torn(NOT smashed).  
The cuts are clean so it could easily be fixable by any body shop.  I think 
glue may even do it.  there are no dings or deep scratches so no bondo will 
need to be used anywhere else.  I have decided to put it on ebay.  I have 3 
pictures showing its condition.  I am selling it on an "as-is basis so please 
visit the link at 

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/aw-cgi/ebayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=330424006

Thanks list,
Dave
